    Just like that. Where can I search for words or get a Find function inside Pages for iPad.?

    On my documents (specially on big ones) I require this functionality.

    Tap the wrench icon, then Find.

    The keyboard will appear with a search bar above. Type in your word or phrase. Cycle through the results using the arrow buttons to the right of the bar. Use the gear icon to the left to change it's behavior.

    No problem. Glad to help.

    This link might help. The Pages Help online documentation is pretty much the same information you can get by selecting the Help option in Pages, but it's nice to be able to get it from the web as well.

    Apple - Support - iOS Apps

    I just finished reading the Help files. Seems like Pages for iPad it's a great tool but is not as powerful as the Mac version. I hope apple releases a new version for the Mac osx. I'm still using iWork 09.

    Yes, I'd like to see a new OS X version as well, especially if it address's the lingering formatting incompatibilities with the iOS version. I don't expect the iOS version to become as powerful or flexible; instead I'd like the ability to lock a document to the iOS format, so that when editing in OS X I would be limited to iOS compatible features.

    That would be better than the warning you get every time you pass a document back and forth.

    I also need to upgrade my iLife suite on the Mac. It's about two full versions behind.
